[ laughter ] >> great to be back at work. we have patchy fog today a little at the coastline. we'll talk about that and we had another earthquake. we'll talk about that coming up. >> out the door, we have that overnight roadwork. it's continuing if you're heading into downtown oakland between 16th and broadway. and then more roadwork on 880. this time in the southbound lanes in san leandro. so we'll tell you if it's slow plus check mass transit. it's all coming up. >> thank you. put your hands up! put your hands up! turn around! >> i'm a oakland firefighter. i saw the door open. >> this video may be hard to see. it's a tense confrontation between a bay area police officer and an off-duty firefighter with his two sons. the video comes from a camera the officer was wearing. >> kpix 5's christin ayers shows us what went down at a
fire station in oakland last month. >> put the bag down. >> huh? >> put your hands up! put your hands up! turn around! >> reporter: the video from an officer's chest camera is dark but it shows an oakland firefighter's tense encounter with an oakland police officer. >> i'm a oakland firefighter. that's my truck right there. >> reporter: that's the voice of firefighter keith jones. in an interview last week with kpix 5 he told us he was passing his fire station and he noticed a door to the station ajar. before he could close it he and his nine and 12-year-old sons were approached by an oakland cop. >> i'm pretty much thinking he's going to shoot me. >> reporter: jones told us he was worried he would be shot and wondered aloud whether race played a factor in the officer's response. >> if we were white, i really truly believe he would not have approached my kids that way. >> reporter: in a video, you can hear jones consoling his crying son. but moments later, the officer asks for jones id. >> lift your hands up as high as you can and turn around for
me one time. all right. yeah, reach in your back pocket and grab it. >> reporter: jones hands it over and the officer apologizes. >> you can put your hands down, kids. sorry about that. you can relax, too,. >> reporter: christin ayers, kpix 5. >> jones has filed a complaint with the police department. in a statement released with the video, oakland's police chief said the officer acted within policy. a teenager under arrest for the stabbing death of a 14-year- old boy in san francisco. the suspected killer is a former classmate of the victim rashawn williams. williams and his brother went into the mission district store tuesday night to buy some candy and when they walked out, williams was stabbed in the chest. he had just started classes at sacred heart cathedral. he has been doing a good job as president of the united states of america. >> that's williams delivering a newscast last year while he was in middle school. his cousin tells us williams had a 4.0 grade point average and had signed up to play on
sacred heart's football team. >> when i found out he didn't make it through surgery, i dropped my phone instantly. i was in tears. i was crying. >> his football coach told williams' parents there was some sort of fight on social media and williams felt threatened. the name of the boy who was arrested hasn't been released. people in napa valley felt another aftershock this morning. it was magnitude 3 at 3:56 a.m. no injuries are reported from that or from a minor earthquake that shook the peninsula at 8:24 also night, 2.9 in ladera a few miles from stanford. imagine having a 30-second wake-up call right before a quake hits. kpix 5's ann notarangelo reports, quake scientists from all over the world are meeting at cal this week trying to make it happen. [ beep beep ] >> earthquake, earthquake! reporter: eight seconds before the napa quake a select few people in san francisco
knew it was coming. another small group in berkeley knew five seconds before the ground started shaking. no one in napa knew what was about to happen. but the real test of the evolving statewide earthquake early warning is encouraging. over the next three days, experts from around the world will discuss how their early warning systems work in europe, japan and mexico and how to move it full speed ahead in california. >> getting that warning, businesses and individuals can do so much to protect their interests, their financial interests as well as protecting their lives. >> with a 10 second lead time we would have been able to take a 30-mile-an-hour train and bring it to a complete stop and take a 70-mile-an-hour train and reduce it down to 40 miles an hour. >> i think it's, look, long overdue. we have had this technology for years. california needs to move over. i know $80 million is $80 million plus or minus but at the end of the day, this not only is something that can save lives; it can mitigate a substantial amount of damage. >> reporter: $80 million is the
initial price tag. the state is hearing from private industry that wants to help pay for it if they can prevent or reduce their losses for their businesses and save money in the long run. ann notarangelo, kpix 5. >> we just had another earthquake just a little bit ago, right? >> yeah, just a few minutes ago we had another earthquakes. napa tense to shake. numerous -- napa continues to shake. numerous quakes around the bay area for the last 24 hours. continuing to rattle and roll around the bay area as a 2.9 near stanford overnight, another one in the east bay and stronger just recently at 3:56. this one centered about 3 miles west-northwest of american canyon, 3.0. so that's a good shaker there. more of those likely to come. all right. around the bay area, we have some patchy fog along the coastline, some of that stretching inside the bay and a little drizzle, too. throughout the morning, should be a beautiful day temperatures mild. of course, the ocean temperatures still running above normal for this time of
year so you have 50s and 60s to begin with. by the afternoon sunshine and 80s a couple of low 90s inland. 70s and 80s and sunny inside the bay and 60s toward the beaches. all right. let's check the roads now with elizabeth. >> we have a little bit of a detour to tell you about until about 5:00. caltrans says they are doing some roadwork in the bear creek on-ramp, northbound 17 closed. they hope to re-open the ramp at 5 a.m. the bay bridge toll plaza, obviously very light. overnight caltrans reported that the right lanes were blocked from the incline to treasure island. but they should be wrapping all that up if it's not gone already. and out to oakland once again a lot of overnight roadwork here. northbound 880, 16th and broadway and southbound 880 coming into san leandro approaching davis. all that is scheduled to wrap up once again in the next 20 minutes. a lot of roadwork is already cleared in fact. the roadwork through livermore and on the eastshore freeway.
you can always use mass transit though and everything -- bart looks like everything is on time systemwide. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." frank and michelle, back to you guys. >> all right. thank you, elizabeth. 4:37. police have made some arrests after another case of foreign visitors being robbed in san francisco. yesterday, two men from germany were beaten by seven men near jones and greenwich streets. the culprits stole a camera and took off. san francisco police later arrested four men close to a nearby playground. police are trying to determine now if those same people were involved in similar robberies in san francisco just last week. an oakland city councilwoman says changes in the way the police department hires -- rebecca kaplan says only 8% of the officers on the force are from oakland even though almost 1500 residents have applied for the last five police academies, only 30 accepted. some were rejected for low credit scores, others for past
convictions. kaplan's plan would change that. >> and so given that oakland requires 50% local hirings of businesses we contract with, we should expect no less in terms of our hiring for our police department. >> kaplan, who is running for mayor of oakland, plans to make a formal proposal in two weeks. missouri's governor jay nixon ended a state of emergency in ferguson. the state of emergency was in effect since august 16 because of riots over the police shooting a man. cbs news reports the justice department will open a civil rights investigation into the ferguson police department t will focus on several years of arrest patterns and allegations of excessive force. that's in addition to local and federal investigations into the fatal shooting of michael brown. developing news. president obama is in the united kingdom today for the start of the two-day nato summit in wales.
as cbs news' mark albert reports, the isis situation and the russia-ukraine crisis will be the main points of focus. reporter: on the sidelines of the nato summit in wales, president obama is meeting with european allies in part to help build an international coalition to address the growing threat of isis in iraq and syria. the president coauthored an op ed with british prime minister david cameron in today's times of london newspaper, accusing the group of brutal and poisonous extremism and vowed to strengthen their resolve against the group. vice president joe biden hammered the message home. >> we will follow them to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice! >> reporter: amid ongoing u.s. airstrikes against isis targets in iraq, isis has kept up its brutality, beheading a second american journalist steven sotloff this week. his father was at a loss for words yesterday. a spokesman delivered a message on behalf of the family. >> steve was no hero.
like all of us, he was a mere man trying to find good in a world of darkness. >> reporter: lawmakers on capitol hill are pressuring president obama to quickly lay out a plan to stop isis in syria. some in both the house and senate are planning to introduce legislation allowing him to use force if necessary. >> there are a -- a -- -- they are a violent group. you cannot negotiate with them. you cannot sit down and reason with them. >> reporter: congress will return from its recess monday with isis already on its full plate. in washington, mark albert, kpix 5. an american medical worker who recovered from the ebola virus finally spoke to reporters. nancy writebol held a news conference in north carolina yesterday to talk about her ordeal. she and dr. kent brantly became sick while working in liberia. then they were flown to the united states and treated at a georgia hospital. writebol spoke about the moment her husband broke the news that she had ebola. >> david came towards me to give me a hug and to put his
arms around me and i knew how dangerous that was and so i said, no. just no. and there were many times when i thought, i don't think i'm going to make it. >> meanwhile, another u.s. doctor is being treated in liberia after coming down with the ebola virus. dr. rick sacra of massachusetts was there to deliver babies and was not even working in the ebola wing. time now 4:41. coming up, a touchy subject in santa clara this morning. what to do with ray mcdonald. we'll check with jim harbaugh about the answer. >> what's cool about your school? email your nomination to us at email@example.com and we may come and feature your school on the show. ,,,,,,
i'm sold! he's a selling machine! put it there. and there, and there, and there. la quinta inns & suites is ready for you, so you'll be ready for business. the ready for you alert, only a laquinta.com! la quinta! e tackle was arreste the nfl and the 49ers still pondering what to do about ray mcdonald. the defensive tackle arrested over the weekend is accused of domestic violence. the question is should he play
in this weekend's season opener against dallas? betty yu reports it's a touchy subject. reporter: ray mcdonald stretched and practiced with the team but we still don't know if he will play in four days and coach harbaugh doesn't know either. when asked who would be making that call -- >> i wouldn't concentrate or who or what who is doing or who's making the decision. it's what's going to make the decision. that's information and fact. >> reporter: harbaugh appeared frustrated with repeated questions about mcdonald and sunday's season opener. >> uhm, we can have an informal poll right now. uhm, you know, raise your hand if you are not in favor of due process. one hand. >> reporter: he also wouldn't talk about mcdonald's mindset. >> as i said, i mean, i have known him for three years. i have been in many
conversations with him. anything i could say would be positive. but matt, what i'm saying is, we owe to everyone involved, respect for due process. >> reporter: nfl commissioner roger goodell said he won't act rashly to enforce the league as new domestic violence policy, one that will ban players for life after the second offense. >> well, i think the first thing you have to do is let the process play out, get the facts and make sure you understand all the circumstances and, uhm, we don't right now. and, uhm, we're obviously it very closely. >> reporter: betty yu, kpix 5. >> coach harbaugh was asked whether he will get all the facts and all the information by sunday's game and he said he just doesn't know. yesterday, the san jose police department said mcdonald's case has not yet been presented to the district attorney's office. much different kind of story regarding the oakland raiders. oakland city council says it has everything in place for a new stadium but the raiders
need to sign off on it. it calls for the demolition of the coliseum and a new football only stadium in it place. the public would pay millions for it. if you never have seen a dolphin being born, now's your chance. this amazing video is from a waterpark in italy. a dolphin named blue gave birth august night. the delivery was caught on camera. it took just a few minutes for the cub to come out tail first and then the mother pushed her baby to the surface for its first breath. the cub weighed 44 pounds and was about 3.5 feet long. >> 44 pounds, that's a big baby. >> swimming already. they just take off and there they go. >> didn't really have a choice. >> really, got to get the air! got some changes coming up in the next couple of days. some nice weather going to be showing up but very interestingly with a hurricane
norbert off the baja. drizzle at the coastline as we head throughout the day we'll find lots of sunshine and some warm temperatures, too. these numbers right about normal for this time of year. and slightly warmer friday and for the weekend. norbert is spinning off the coastline of baja. going to cabo? expect heavy rainfall there. this is a category 1 hurricane expected to move in cooler waters but right along the coast of baja so anywhere along there expecting heavy rainfall and could possibly make landfall as a very strong storm as we head in toward early next week, maybe into the san diego area. high pressure though taking care of us now and holding on. you have a low off the coastline. we should see warm temperatures into the afternoon. 90s in the central valley. yosemite lots of sunshine. temperatures in the bay 89
livermore, 85 napa, 74 oakland, 70 san francisco. as we look out over the next few days, a little more sunshine and temperatures warmer on friday and saturday, a few clouds moving in sunday into monday with a weak trough sliding through. that will cool down our temperatures through tuesday. then warming back up again by the middle of next week. let's check the roads with elizabeth. thank you, lawrence. and we have already got a little bit of slowing right now in livermore. the drive time is actually in the yellow so ted with kcbs let us know that the roadwork on westbound 580 cleared ahead of schedule but we have a stall now approaching airway in the center divide so maybe that's causing slowing in the area. you can see our sensors are popping up yellow just behind that stall. then we're seeing our usual slow traffic now coming off the 205 out of tracy. so anyway, that combination is making for a slightly delayed commute now in the commute direction between the altamont pass and the dublin interchange. we also have this problem in benicia. this accident is in the center divide southbound 680 approaching marsh view road.
it was reported shortly after 4:00. it's still in our chp reports. here's a live look at the bay bridge toll plaza. all clear heading into san francisco. eastshore freeway also looks good. they did clear the overnight roadwork there, as well. 19 minutes from the carquinez bridge to the maze. 880 looking great near the oakland coliseum. you will still hit some overnight roadwork very likely. it was subject to wrap up by 5:00 but this morning, northbound lanes heading into downtown oakland 16th through broadway and southbound 880 heading into san leandro various lanes blocked. here's a few cars now heading across the golden gate bridge southbound. looks good, looks like they have three lanes open in each direction of 101 heading closer to the golden gate bridge toll plaza. and your east bay drive times obviously this one still a little slow. usually -- this is not by much. usually by this time of the morning it's 14 minutes between the altamont pass and 680. so a five-minute delay. 880 and the eastshore freeway, still look good. mass transit is on time.
that's your latest "kcbs" drive to work. remember kcbs, our radio partner, when you hit the roads at 106.9 fm or 740-am. back to you guys. >> thank you. it is 4:50 now. dancing on the job is frowned upon for certain people in england i guess. specifically, buckingham palace guards like this one recently caught breaking out some pretty sweet moves there. the crowd certainly enjoyed it but the royal military brass may not. the guard may now face discipline. >> thought it wasn't allowed. samsung is changing up its look with its newest smartphone. the right side of the galaxy note edge is curved to give you a place to put your toolbar while saving space on the screen. samsung says it will be available later this year. no word on the price. and people are already getting in line for the new iphone 6. dan benton shot this photo outside an apple store in
manhattan. the phone will not even be unveiled for five more days. people are camping out. facebook's auto play video feature is being blamed for pushing data plan bills over the limit. smartphone users are advised to change the default button in the settings to disable that. >> it's hard to keep track of that. i haven't even downloaded the new thing. the messenger. let it go. time now 4:51. a new feature in the castro district has some errors. look closely at these plaques and we'll tell you what he is missing. >> we want to invite all your pet lovers, send us your questions about their health and well-being. email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on our facebook page, just search kpix/cbs, and we'll have our pet expert give you an answer every friday right here at noon. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
we have a game going on tonight. you want to check out the athletics? we have the houston astros in town, should be mostly clear a little bit breezy maybe some fog toward the end of the game. temperature about 66 degrees. and your ride to work looks clear right now if you are heading toward the san mateo bridge. we have a drive time of 13 minutes between hayward and the peninsula. we'll take a check of mass transit, a full "kcbs traffic report" a few minutes away. it is counted as a new attraction in san francisco, but as kpix 5's andria borba reports, the rainbow honor walk is plagued with very costly mistakes. reporter: cast in bronze on the sidewalk of castro street are 20 important faces of the gay community. >> it's very exciting. we now have our own lgbt walk of fame in the castro. >> reporter: it's called the
rainbow honor walk, and it's a project a long time in the making. >> i didn't have gray hair when it started. >> reporter: among the honorees, author tennessee williams, who could write a play about two of the sculptures entitled a street plaque named typo. exhibit a, oscar wilde, who was apparently known for his bitting wit and christine jorgenson who was so far ahead in the transgendered missouri that she didn't need the s in her plaque. >> i have never seen a project delivered without, you know, issues that need to be corrected. >> as soon as we knew there was anything less than perfection on the plaques we called the manufacturer and they said absolutely we'll fix it no problem. >> reporter: 100% of the cost for the plaques was raised. much like a headline like dewey defeats truman is big bucks, when the corrected plaque also arrive these will be removed and auctioned off for the honor
walk and the transgender law center. a minor bump in the road to cementing castro street history. >> just to know that the people who now walk down castro street can walk literally in the path of those who walked before us. >> reporter: in san francisco, andria borba, kpix 5. >> if all goes as planned, the walk will eventually extend from the harvey milk school to the lgbt center. it is 4:56. up next, president barack obama calling a meeting with allies today on the isis threat. coming up, the latest on the u.s. message to that terror group. >> reporter: an announcement is causing disappointment and embarrassment for california politicians. the next step for tesla coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,,

police officer. >> found out that he didn't make it through surgery, it was just i dropped my phone instantly and was in tears and crying. >> a teenager is behind bars this morning after allegedly stabbing a 14-year-old boy to death in san francisco. >> very good for tesla and so i'm very frustrated, given our history with tesla in terms of what we've provided for them. >> tesla announces today its next massive factory is going to nevada. >> today is the only gubernatorial debate on the calendar this election season. governor jerry brown has little to lose as he faces republican challenger neel kashkari. from across the bay to around the world, the stories that matter on "kpix 5 news this morning." good morning, everyone. i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everyone. i'm frank mallicoat. 5:00. >> some breaking news this morning. people in napa valley felt another aftershock. it was a magnitude 3 at 3:56 this morning. you can see it here on our
seismograph. it was centered outside of american canyon. no injuries are reported from that or from a minor earthquake that shook the peninsula at 8:24 last night. >> and it's been nearly a week and a half now, and they are still shaking. >> they will likely continue to do so. more of those aftershocks are expected. hopefully they will just be minor. in the meantime, though, we have some patchy fog outside this morning. looks like a brighter day ahead as we'll see plenty of sunshine into the afternoon. the fog thick enough though to bring some drizzle along the coastline. over the bay some clouds there now but temperatures are still staying very mild. the sea surface temperatures are running slightly above average. we just haven't seen that typical pacific ridge building in. in other words, we have 50s and 60s outside and by the afternoon, should be sunny and bright in most spots away from the coast 89 degrees in livermore, 88 in concord, 81 in san jose. asking 70 in san
